The two basic methods in catechesis, deductive and inductive, are rooted in the pedagogy of God, which inspires many different types of human methods. These include learning through human experience, learning by discipleship, learning within the Christian Community (including liturgical catechesis), learning within the Christian family, learning through witness of the catechist, learning by heart, learning by Christian living, and learning by apprenticeship.  This course explores not only the methods but also the best practices associated with catechesis (e.g. lesson planning, classroom activities, etc.)


By the end of the course students will be able to:

  1. Describe the characteristics of the pedagogy of God.
  2. Be acquainted with the various forms of human methodology in catechesis and how to apply them in a classroom setting.
  3. Identify various formats/approaches, tools and resources for successful catechesis.
